    I usually go for 3-4 days but i have an addiction of wanting to take everything for anything that would possably come up. I need an overpacking intervention....

    Just created an account in Geargrams! Thanks for the tip in this thread. My gear is in three cardboard boxes, a few REI bags and hidden in different packs. My dining room table is covered in old and new gear and I've been weighing everything in different combinations. The longer I stare at it the more I freeze up when planning my next trip. Geargrams will definitely help organize and I can decide which items I never use and find a new home for them!

    I agree gear gram is great tool useful for tracking weight.

    Now I just need to get a scale, then my family can roll their eyes at me, just like grannypat's do to her.

    I use gear grams to weigh my gear as well as to make sure I have everything for my trips.

    just seems to be an OCD thing with me also

    I got the wire rack cube storage from Target and set them up in the closet in the spare bedroom. All the stuff goes into plastic totes in the cubby holes based on category. There's floor space to on side for the backpack and rolled up pads to go and way back out of the way in the other corner I have my poles and my sleeping bag goes into a mesh laundry bag and hangs from the coat hanger pole already in the closet.

    I have one in Open Office format if you'd like. No macros or anything like that.
